All of us here at My Clean Kitchen are excited to introduce the 7 Day Eat Clean Challenge! It’s a great way to clean up your diet and learn how to stay consistent. You will know what’s in your food because you made it, not from a box or a package, from whole, fresh ingredients. Cut…
7 Day Eat Clean Challenge
This is a quick and easy breakfast for a busy morning. It’s absolutely scrumptious. The fresh basil is a tasty surprise paired with the tangy tomato. This could also be the perfect breakfast for Christmas morning. You can even make it quick before the kids start tearing into their presents.
I usually do a food gift for the neighbors and friends in town. In the past I’ve made candied pecans. But, this year I did a cleaned up version of the “nut” gift. The rosemary and chipotle flavors marry so well with the maple syrup. These almonds are so yummy, I had to force myself to stop eating them so I had enough to package up for gifts. I’ll be making a few more clean eating food gifts this week.
I am a pesto addict. I think it might be the perfect sauce. it has everything a great sauce should…nuts, cheese, herbs, and pretty colors. For the longest time I only ever made traditional pesto, but recently I have decided to branch out! Here is one of my newest addictions…Spinach Pesto! It is delicious! And a great way to use up that extra spinach in our fridge. Trust me, once you try it, you will be a convert as well!!!
Hard boiled eggs are a simple and healthy snack packed with protein. I eat them almost every day for breakfast or when I need an energy boost during the day. Here is a simple and foolproof recipe for making the perfect hard boiled eggs!
Pancakes are a weekend ritual at our house. My daughter and I love to cook together and pancakes are the perfect recipe for little hands to help with. She puts on her apron and gets up on her cooking stool. Her favorite part is mashing the bananas for me. We’ve been taste testing a whole wheat oatmeal pancake recipe for weeks now and finally perfected it this weekend. My daughter loved them, in fact, she ate 4 pancakes throughout the morning. That’s a lot for a little tummy.
So, this Egg Muffin recipe is a fantastic Sunday afternoon recipe because you can save the extra muffins in a ziptop bag and have a quick and healthy breakfast for the rest of the week.
I was first introduced to the ginger, honey and carrot combo in college. When my folks would come up for football games they would stay outside town at this little bed and breakfast. They also served dinner on Friday nights. One Friday night, they served a variation on these carrots. It became a family favorite. They sold us this Junior League cookbook, where the owner had gotten the recipe. I have no idea where that cookbook ended up through the years but I have continued to cook these carrots. The recipes have changed and morphed over the years into what it is today. And, its delicious
Taco Tuesday! One of my favorite days of the week. I’m a big taco lover and have been looking at ways to “clean” up my taco habit. Have you ever looked at the ingredients on the “taco” seasoning you buy at the store. Wow. I can’t pronounce half of them.
I love this stuff. It is so easy to make and people love it! The very first time I made this recipe I brought it over to a friends house for a picnic. Before the day was over I had 5 people ask me for the recipe. The avocado is so creamy that you don’t even miss the mayo in traditional chicken salad. And bonus…unlike mayo you don’t have to worry about it spoiling on a hot day!
